This lower, dwarf cultivar of the Slender Deutzia is fairly commonly sold in many nurseries in southeast Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic. Many of its stems grow along the ground and root, and it is like a groundcover. It does make a good delicate white flower display and it gets a good purple fall color. It is hard to remove leaves and any trash caught in the plant. One has to really get down on the ground to prune it. One customer of mine planted one next to Common Periwinkle and the evergreen Vinca groundcover has grown all through it, hiding it from view, so keep other groundcovers away from it.
